YES! I finished the poetry challenge! I’m so proud of myself for doing this! I did end up missing a few days, but overall, I think I did pretty good. This was a nw and different experience for me, but it was a lot of fun. There were times (as you could probably tell) when I was frustrated with the challenge and couldn’t think of anything to write, but I overcame those road blocks and kept on going.
I would definitely do this challenge again and again, and I would also recommend this challenge to other people who enjoy writing poetry. You don’t even have to create poetry for a blog. You could just write down whatever you feel in a notebook and keep it for yourself!
But just because the poetry challlenge is over, doesn’t mean that I won’t write poetry anymore! It is one of my favorite styles of writing and I will continue to write a post my pieces for everyone to see.
Most people thing that snakes are cruel
But I happen to think that they’re pretty cool
Snakes can be playful and fun
And they never weigh more than a ton
They slither around
With sun glinting of their scales
And did you know rattlesnake rattles
are the same material as our fingernails?
In conclusion, snakes are really great
And they can live to be older than eight!
The blogging challenge is getting hard,
And my ideas are becoming a little avante garde.
Playing with words
Trying new things
Yeah, poetry is pretty great
Stamps, stamps, stamps
You press them down on your hands
You also use them on important papers
Because they get sent to important people later
But there are times when the ink gets all over you,
And it may look like you are turning blue!
But overall, stamps are pretty fun,
So if you ever need to write a letter, you’ll need a stamp
Then you’re done!
You torment me
With all your questions
And impossible answers
You teach me
Because of you,
You cause me to suffer
And you enlighten me
You are good and bad
Black and white
Left and right
You are bitter- sweet.
Whoosh! Goes a car as it speeds by,
If they’re in a rush, I’m not sure why.
Honk! Goes the horn of a thousand cars,
Stuck in traffic ‘till they see the stars!
Rustle! Goes a paper as students take a test,
I really do hope that they do their best!
Squeak! Goes the sound of shoes on a court,
The kids must be playing a fun team sport.
These are the sounds I hear everyday,
As well as robins, cardinals, and perhaps a bluejay.
Today in english class, we had an attendance question which read, ‘Poetry Is…’. There were so many different answers, some positive, some negative; some sentences, some single word answers.
This inspired me to write a poem, so I used a lot of these different answers to write one. I hope you enjoy!
How I express myself
Something I wish never existed
Like a waterfall, it flows and ripples
Like jellybeans because there are many different types
A way to relax
Like a voice singing out to me
Poetry is many different things
To many different people
Shhhhhh…do you hear that? That is the gentle sound of water trickling over rocks. I love listening to the sounds of nature, but I think my favorites are rain and the sound of water in a stream.
Whenever I go camping, I love to stay up at night and listen to the sounds of nature, from the sound of crickets chirping to the soft rustle of the leaves in the trees. Sometimes I like to just sit on my porch and read with mother nature’s music playing in the wind.
Do you have a favorite sound? Comment what it is!
